Lisarow to Ourimbah - Pacific Highway upgrade between Ourimbah Street, Lisarow and Glen Road, Ourimbah

Updates and announcements

Night work

Roads and Maritime Services will be completing night work as part of the Pacific Highway upgrade between Ourimbah and Lisarow.

This night work will take up to eight night shifts from Wednesday 24 October to Friday 30 November. Our night working hours will be from 6pm to 5am, weather permitting.

The night work is needed in prepartion for the upcoming traffic changes and will involve:

  • asphalting and line marking work in sections between Glen Road and south of Ourimbah Street; This work will take up to six nights to complete
  • moving safety barriers will take place over two nights.

Impacted residents will be contacted closer to the date of work in your area. We have included a map to show where the work will be located. This work is to be completed at night to minimise impact to traffic.

Traffic changes

During night work traffic control will be in place which may affect travel times. Traffic in both directions on the Pacific Highway will be stopped intermittently for up to five minutes at a time to allow work to be completed safely. The night work is in preparation for the traffic changes.

Traffic changes will take place to move traffic onto newly built sections of road so that work can begin in new areas. The traffic changes will be done in two stages.

  • Stage 1 – From Glen Road to Cut Rock Creek traffic will be moved to the east to allow for work on the western side to begin.

The bus stop that is currently located near Walmsley Road will be relocated 100 metres north. Signage will be put in place to direct you to the new location. The new bus stop location will be in place until further notice.

  • Stage 2 – From Cut Rock Creek to south of Ourimbah Street traffic will be moved to the west onto the newly built northbound carriageway so that work can begin on the existing Pacific Highway, which will become the new southbound carriageway.

Project background

Roads and Maritime Services is planning and delivering the Pacific Highway upgrade between Narara and Ourimbah in stages.

The NSW Governnment is providing $70 million for this section of the upgrade.

The concept design and review of environmental factors for the section of highway between Ourimbah Street, Lisarow and Glen Road, Ourimbah was displayed for community comment in June 2011.

In October 2011 the review of environmental factors was determined and the project received approval to proceed. View or download the review of environmental factors (PDF,7.25Mb) and submissions report (PDF,10.99Mb).

The construction contract was awarded to Civil Mining & Construction Pty Ltd in February 2016.

Project features

The upgrade is shown on the project map (PDF, 1.12 Mb) and includes:

  • Two lanes in each direction on the Pacific Highway
  • New traffic lights with pedestrian crossing facilities at the Ourimbah Street, Teralba Street and Walmsley Road intersections
  • A shared pedestrian and cycle path on the western side of the highway
  • New bridges over Cut Rock Creek.

The upgrade will improve traffic flow and travel times for around 29,000 motorists travelling this 1.6 kilometre section of highway each day. It will also improve safety for motorists, pedestrians and road users.

Next steps

We expect to complete the project in late 2018, weather permitting.
